About SNF

Helping our members prosper

Since 1901

Founded in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, over a century ago, the Serb National Federation is one of the oldest and largest Serbian-American fraternal organizations on this continent.

Today, the SNF continues to provide quality life insurance, annuities, and scholarships for its membership and sponsors academic, sports, and cultural events. Throughout its history, the SNF has contributed over $1 million in aid to the Serbian people, both here in America and in the Old Country.
